About Dr Wurdemann

Dr Helge A Wurdemann is an electrical engineer and started his studies with focus on mechatronics and robotics in the medical field at the Leibniz University of Hanover. As part of this programme, he visited Auckland University of Technology and carried out a research project at the Mechatronic Research Centre, Loughborough University in 2007. In 2008, Dr Wurdemann completed his final year research project at the Institute of Robotic and Mechatronic (now: Institute of Mechatronic Systems). His PhD project started in late 2008 at the Centre for Robotics Research, King’s College London and was funded by the EPSRC. In November 2011, he then joined the EU FP7 projects COSMOS and STIFF-FLOP. From 2012 to 2015, Dr Wurdemann was a Research Associate, EU Project Manager and Leader of the Haptics Lab and Soft Robotics Lab at the Centre for Robotics Research, King’s College London. In January 2016, he joined UCL Mechanical Engineering as Lecturer in Medical Devices.

Dr Helge Wurdemann has published over 35 peer-reviewed papers in journals and at international premium conferences in robotics and is Co-I on EU projects STIFF-FLOP and FourbyThree. Dr Wurdemann has also been involved in organising committees of several international conferences and workshops and has been invited to demonstrate his research at the Science Museum’s Robot Safari in London, the Schunk Expert Days and the British Science Festival. In March 2015, he organised the 2015 Innovative Surgical Robotics Forum in London together with KTN (RAS SIG) and the EC inviting 4 leading EU projects and distinguished speakers to bring research together with some entrepreneurial energy.
